"if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all..."....LOL.
61, Pca at 57, Stage 4 at 60,
I just got my most recent PSA from online...(I see the Oncologist in a few hours) but, alas, it went up AGAIN. This after a year on Lupron, six sessions of Chemo ending in February of this year. It went down slowly until the chemo ended...and now has begun it's gentle climb back up...from 1.1 (the lowest my PSA has gone PERIOD since starting treatment 4 + years ago) just after Chemo ended...to 1.83 on last test...and now ...today....Voila 2.4
I'm being thankful that's it not higher. Every time I get mine checked I have myself geared up the be "thankful" for what is really NOT good news. NOW, when I see the Oncologist, I'm hoping to NOT have to start any additional treatments --Cassodex, Xytiga(or something like that)--for about 3 more months~~ so that I can get a planned 3-week holiday. to Europe in late August over with at the same energy level I am at now with just Lupron. It's bad enough....LOL.
Oh, well, I will hear what the learned Doctor says in about 4 hours.
Life Is Beautiful!
